Pitcher of the Week
Johnny Cueto, Chattanooga
1-0, 0.69 ERA, 2 G, 2 GS, 13 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 19 SO
Cueto, a 21-year-old flamethrower, made his Double-A debut with the Lookouts on Tuesday and immediately showed that he belonged. Well, almost immediately. After surrendering a home run to the first batter he faced, the Dominican native hurled six scoreless innings and picked up the win against Huntsville. Cueto was even better against the Mudcats on Sunday, as he struck out 13 batters over seven shutout innings in a game that was suspended with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning.
13 IP 8H 19K….that is strong.
